Cale Makar Considered Day-to-Day

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

Cale Makar missed last night’s game with an upper body injury. He is considered day-to-day. He has 12 goals and 47 points in 56 games this season, so an update should be provided in the next day or so but he isn’t expected to be out long term. The lines will most likely shift slightly if he is not able to play. He is one of the top contributors as a defenseman in the NHL.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Based on our latest projection, you can expect Cale Makar to be an elite fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 25 projected fantasy points puts him at #4 behind Anthony DeAngelo and ahead of Alex Pietrangelo. He has averaged 3.39 fantasy points in his past 57 games, which is more than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 2.12 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#6) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 99%, he is the #9 most highly owned defenseman. Cale Makar is expected to slightly improve on this season-to-date's #6 fantasy position rank.

CALE MAKAR WEEK 24 AND 25 FANTASY OUTLOOK

He is ranked above Kris Letang but behind Roman Josi the rest of the week. Week 25 will not be as good based on projected rank (#9). He is projected for 6.71 fantasy points.
